Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That: BUNYAN, John

Item Description: London Printed fro Nathanael Ponder, 1682. The Most Well-Known Allegory Ever Written BUNYAN, John. The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come: delivered under the similitude of a dream, wherein is discovered, the manner of his setting out, his dangerous journey, and safe arrival at the desired country. London: Printed for Nathanael Ponder, 1682. The eighth edition. Twelvemo. [xii], 211, [1, 'Conclusion'], [4. publisher's ads] pp. Including frontispiece and two full page woodcuts. Early nineteenth-century blind-tooled sheep, spine blind-stamped in compartments and with gilt spine lettering, brown endpapers. Some wear to upper spine with a small crack. Marginal notes trimmed in a few places. Old rust mark to pp. 88-89. Some browning throughout. Overall, a very good copy of this very rare item. This is a genuine eighth edition. In the last thirty years there have only been two other Pilgrim's Progress published in 1682 to come up at auction and both of these were spurious with one claiming to be the 'Fifth edition' and the other the other the 'Ninth Edition". Harrison cites a New York Public Library catalog of 1929. which claims that the 'fifth' edition was not issued by Nathanael Ponder, and Sharrock records that the British Library copy of the same and that in the library of the Bunyan Meeting, Bedford, although bearing Ponder's name, "are totally unlike all other editions bearing his imprint." They are apparently printed in smaller type on inferior paper, with no shoulder noted. OCLC only records six copies of this actual 1682 (eighth) edition. The most well-known allegory ever written, this journey of the protaganist, Christian, is simultaneously filled with vivid and full human portraits of its characters. With over 100,000 copies sold in Bunyan’s lifetime, this "most perfect and complex of fairy tales" succeeded in attracting audiences from every Christian sect. Harrison pp. 39-40. Wing B-5568. According to Harrison there are only thirty-eight known copies of any complete edition prior to this one (of which OLCL locates six, of which three are imperfect); making this one of the forty-three earliest known copies and one of only four known complete copies of the eighth edition.

Item Description: Robert Ponder; J. Deacon 1689; 1690; 1693, London, 1689. Leather Bound. pp. 204; (11) 180; 155 + 44 + ads (3). 12mo. Early rebind in full leather, showing typical trimming of margins. 15 engravings: 13 in Part I (two missing); one each in Parts II (at p.47) and III (frontispiece). Front board detached, some spotting to text, missing p. 73-6 & 123/4 of Part I, as well as p. 147/8 of Part II, as is common for seventeenth-century editions of this title. Signature of "P Gibault" on the front endpaper, could be ascribed to Father Pierre Gibault (1737-1802), 18th century Jesuit missionary and priest. Part I: Robert Ponder 1689 12th edition: containing 13 of the 15 called-for plates (Brown), this is the first edition of Part I to be published by Robert Ponder, after Nathaniel's last publication of this title in 1688 though some later editions were again attributed to Nath. Ponder (Brown), and only the second edition issued with plates, including twelve additional and the three previously available plates for each of which A shilling extra had been charged. Part II: Robert Ponder 1690 3rd edition: bearing Bunyan's dialogue warning the reader of the pirated editions which were by that time numerous. Part III: J. Deacon 1693 1st edition: matching points noted for "Supposititious Works" in Harrison, and "Imitations", as in Brown. This third part was "was a brazen attempt to deceive", with the preface signed "J.B." and describing itself as The Third Part, to which is added The Life and Death of John Bunyan. "Despite the strong denunciation of it printed in the form of a publisher's advertisement on the reverse of the title-page in the thirteenth edition, 1693, no fewer than fifty-nine editions of it had appeared before the end of the eighteenth century". (Brown) John Bunyan (1628-1688) was the son of a tinsmith, who spent his early years as "a great sinner: "I was the very ringleader," he claimed, "in all manner of vice and ungodliness"." (Jenkins) He became a believer and a Baptist minister, and was imprisoned in the Bedford gaol for non-Anglican worship. He wrote his masterwork while in prison, an allegorical tale which quickly became a "universally loved.parable of salvation", as well as foundational to the English working-class movement. (PMM) See: Brown "John Bunyan: His Life, Times, and Work"; Owens, "Reception, Appropriation, Recollection: Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress"; Wharey (intro.) "The Pilgrim's Progress"; Harrison, "A Bibliography of the Works of John Bunyan"; Simonova, " Passing Through Vanity Fair: The Pilgrim’s Progress in the Marketplace"; Carter & Muir, "Printing and the Mind of Man"; Jenkins, "Works of Genius", 57.

Twain looked at hallowed European landmarks from a fresh and humorous point of view without reverence for the past, and poked fun at both American and European prejudices and manners."

Item Description: The Sign of the Stein, [No place, 1902. Softcover. String-tied wrappers in hand-painted canvas dustwrapper. 32mo. (5" x 4.75"). (16)pp. Light edgewear and rubbing, near fine in near fine dustwrapper with a modest stain on the rear panel. Artist's engraved business card laid in with a manuscript presentation. A wonderful and wonderfully funny hand-lettered and hand-illustrated book by Walter Jack Duncan, celebrating Charles Mac Rae's courtship of his fiancee, his dwindling days of bachelorhood, his impending marriage, and the horrifying spectre of babies, with just the right touch of sophomoric humor one would expect from a talented 21 year old in 1902. Every page is embellished or illustrated in a most pleasing manner reminiscent of W.W. Denslow. Walter Jack Duncan was a noted illustrator born in Indianapolis in 1881. He studied at the Art Students League in New York City with John H. Twachtman, and illustrated for the popular magazines of the period: *The Century Magazine*, *Scribner's*, *McClure's*, and *Harper's Monthly Magazine*. He also served as an official artist with the A.E.F. during World War I and illustrated many books, including several by Christopher Morley. A lovely production, suitable for reprinting.

Item Description: American Publishing Company, Hartford, 1870. 226 x 149 mm. (9 x 5 3/4"). [80] pp. of sample text (irregularly paginated), [16] leaves of subscription forms (mostly blank). Publisher's black cloth, upper cover with gilt vignette title, lower cover with American Publishing Company device in blind, sample cloth and sheepskin binding options affixed to pastedowns. Housed in a fine later black niger morocco clamshell box With 33 illustrations, comprised of 16 engraved plates with tissue guards, 17 text engravings. Foldout advertisement (with five-inch closed tear) for the publisher's "Family Bible" bound in at rear. Spine head and tail with minor chips, corners somewhat worn, a dozen small blisters in the cloth covering the upper board, but still A SURPRISINGLY WELL-PRESERVED COPY of a category of book almost always encountered in various states of wreckage, this copy entirely clean, completely solid, and with few signs of use in general. Providing a pre-publication sample of content and binding versions for Twain's classic steamship voyage to Europe and the Middle East, this is a salesman's prospectus that time has treated with unusual kindness. The author's first commercial success, the book (in its full-blooded form) is replete with insightful and humorous commentary. As was the custom with many books issued by The American Publishing Company, this copy was sold, not through bookstores, but rather by subscription, using a national network of sales representatives. From town to town they tramped, from city to city they canvassed, door-to-door salesmen who carried with them abridged samples--like the present item--of the books they had for sale. This example contains specimen text, illustrations, binding options and prices, testimonials, reviews, advertisements, and subscription forms. Our anonymous salesman apparently had a brief career, with only two orders entered on the bound-in subscription form: M. Ballou of Princeton, Illinois, ordered a copy in Library Leather with Sprinkled Edge for $4, and C. L. Smith of Princeton ordered one in fine cloth with gilt edge for the same price. Since Princeton, Illinois, is not a large town, and since Ballou is not a terribly common name, it is certainly possible that the first person to succumb to the temptation of the present salesman's dummy was Martin Ballou, the prominent jurist of that name who was born in Halifax, Vermont, in 1812. Ballou attended Harvard, was admitted to the bar in his home state in 1839, and then moved to Princeton, where he was elected Judge of the Circuit Court in 1857, became one of the most well-respected members of his profession in the region, and lived to the end of the century. With the present special object, our salesman's failure turns out to be our own success, for it allowed this dummy (the book, not the salesman) to retire gracefully prior to decrepitude.

Three volumes, complete Octavo. full burgundy morocco decorated in gilt, spines with raised bands and lettered in gilt, inner gilt and morocco dentelles, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, silk bookmarks, by Root. Illustrated with engravings. This set is extra illustrated with 313 plates. The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come; Delivered under the Similitude of a Dream is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature, has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print.Bunyan began his work while in the Bedfordshire county prison for violations of the Conventicle Act, which prohibited the holding of religious services outside the auspices of the established Church of England. Early Bunyan scholars such as John Brown believed The Pilgrim's Progress was begun in Bunyan's second, shorter imprisonment for six months in 1675, but more recent scholars such as Roger Sharrock believe that it was begun during Bunyan's initial, more lengthy imprisonment from 1660 to 1672 right after he had written his spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners.The English text comprises 108,260 words and is divided into two parts, each reading as a continuous narrative with no chapter divisions. The first part was completed in 1677 and entered into the Stationers' Register on 22 December 1677. It was licensed and entered in the "Term Catalogue" on 18 February 1678, which is looked upon as the date of first publication. After the first edition of the first part in 1678, an expanded edition, with additions written after Bunyan was freed, appeared in 1679. The Second Part appeared in 1684. There were eleven editions of the first part in John Bunyan's lifetime, published in successive years from 1678 to 1685 and in 1688, and there were two editions of the second part, published in 1684 and 1686. - wikipedia.

Item Description: George Robertson, 69 Elizabeth-St. [Printed by Walker, May and Co.], MDCCCLXX [1870] and MDCCCLXXI [1871]., Melbourne, 1870. Original Wraps. Book Condition: Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Three volumes in original yellow wrappers, 4.5" x 6.5". Extremely rare first Australian edition, printed in Melbourne without the illustrations that appeared in the American editions, in original publisher's yellow wrappers, with cover lettering in red & black and advertisements on rear covers (also in red & black lettering) for the one volume edition of Innocents Abroad, Twain's The Jumping Frog and Other Stories (published in wrappers) and Bret Harte's The Luck of Roaring Camp. Pagination as follows: Book I: New York to Venice (dated MDCCCLXX [1870] on title-page and MDCCCLXXI [1871] on cover): viii p. + p. 9-120; Book II: Venice to Ephesus (dated MDCCCLXXI [1871] on title-page and cover): [6] p. + p. 121-240; Book III: Syria, Palestine, Egypt and Home (also dated MDCCCLXXI [1871] on title-page and cover): [6] p. + p. 241-384. A spectacular survival and perhaps unique in this binding. Moderate foxing throughout; spines of all three volumes flaked; one-inch marginal tear on cover of Book I; nevertheless a tight, intact set. Contemporary owner's name ("Heath Villa, Double Bay") inscribed in sepia ink on covers of all three volumes and on title-pages of Books I and II. Double Bay is an Eastern suburb of Sydney; Heath Villa would probably have been a lodging house or hotel with a small library available for its clientele, which would explain why it was purchased in the "cheap issue" edition, rather than in the more expensive one-volume cloth edition advertised on the rear wrappers. The author's fame in Australia was both early and lasting; given the length of travel required between the U.S. and Australia at the time, the book's publication in Melbourne only a year after its initial publication in the States is extraordinary, and a testament to Twain's early celebrity abroad. Twain's later world lecture tour, including a successful visit to Australia in the 1890's, further cemented Twain's special relationship with his Australian readers. Bookseller Inventory # 005032

Both volumes are contained within a handsome, cloth lined and leather covered slip case. Volume I is signed by the author using both his real name and his nom de plume. The facing page states that the page was signed by Mark Twain in 1906 in anticipation of the publication of this definitive collection.
